quote one of the most amazing things in this whole episode, martha, is that there is a 2011 opinion, 86 pages long from the fisa court that ruled, that much of what the nsa is doing which is spying on american citizens is both unconstitutional in violation of the fourth amendment and illegal, a violation of the statute. this opinion remains a complete secret. the fisa court has said they have no objection to having it released, but the obama administration insists it has to be secret. both members of congress and

stephanopoulos" starts now. >>> good morning. i'm martha raddatz. george has the morning off. it's great to have you with us. and we begin with breaking news as more than 20 embassies and consulates are closing around the world right now. and here at home, increased security measures are now in place. abc news has learned this morning that the intercepted communications that led to the alert indicate terrorists are planning an attack that is going to be big and, quote, strategically significant. yesterday the white house held an hour's long meeting, high-level meeting with the country's top national security officials to discuss the response to the threat, and we've just learned what went on at that meeting, so let's go straight to jon karl, who is at the white house, and, jon, it sounds like the national security community is really spooked by this. >> reporter: no doubt about that, martha. the high-level meetings here at the white house over the weekend are a sign of just how seriously the u.s. is taking this threat. in fact, officials tell us they believe that there are al qaeda operatives al

affairs correspondent, martha raddatz who is in washington tonight. martha when we see the size and scope of the u.s. response both here at home and yeo seas, what should that tell us about the seriousness of this threat? >> well, dan, it's a very real threat for overseas. what is picked up on electronic intercepts is from known enemies who pose credible danger. but closing so many embassies is clearly in reaction to what happened in benghazi. the u.s. is not taking any chances, and that is really what is happening domestically as well. they are being more vigilant because we don't know what we don't know. >> not taking chances at home or abroad. many of us assume after the killing of osama bin laden, that al qaeda, their strength is vastly diminished. is this a wake-up call in that front? >> well, in some ways, it is. they are all over that region but yemen has become the hot bed. there were three drone strikes there just last week and that tells you something. >> you spent a lot of time in yemen and all of the countries in that region. when you see the embassies there, are they secure?

coming in from overseas of let's go to martha raddatz in washington where she's filling in for george on "this week" this morning. martha, we have beefed up security, both here in the u.s. and overseas. should we read into in that american officials think there's a truly imminent threat here or is this really out of an abundance of caution. >> it is out of an abundance of caution but it is also a very real and very serious threat. as nick said it comes out of yemen. yemen is such a dangerous place and if you look at the history of yemen, that's where the underwear, the so-called underwear bomber came from and tried to get that bomb on a plane to go off. that's what they're worried about. that's why the domestic threat and the domestic warnings because they don't know whether this will be on an airplane, an air base, an embassy, a consulate, they don't know so they want to be very cautious about this. what they do know is that they have these intercepts and the terrorists in yemen have said it will be a significant strike, a strategically significant strike and it will be, quote, big.
